    Does that have an EWK shroud?

    Stay safe.

    OK, I'll bite. I have posted these two many times in the past, but not in an actual safe queen thread. T-series Hi-Power, 68. It grades out at 99%. Never fired after leaving the factory. C-96 Broomie, 1913. Same condition. Inside of gun is gooped with cosmoline. Another 99% gun. Stock is matching. My avatar is another one, although it was fired 200 times by the gunwriter and seven times by me, just so I could say I fired it. And I see my &%#*@& puter is drunk again. :mad: Sorry. You can see some of the cosmoline oozing out next to the hammer in the upside down pic.

    Most of mine get to the range somewhat regularly, but this one really isnt much fun to shoot. I mostly keep it because I think its one of the best looking guns ever. :)

    Years ago I took it down to Simpson's in Galesburg, and Mr. Simpson looked at it. He is known as a Luger expert and he most certainly is that, but he is equally knowledgeable about Broomies. He looked at my C-96 and told me that it looked to be unfired. I learned a lot about C-96s that day. And the first thing I learned was this; Don't store the pistol in the wooden shoulder stock, because if you do, and drop it , the stock will usually crack.:( Advice I have heeded.

    This one isn't a total safe queen. It gets out and goes.

    Nice! That nickel finish certainly makes the DW shine, it looks awesome. :thumbup:

    I have a 3” VH barrel/shroud from EWK on a 15-2. They do good work.

    (The wooden Hogue grip is a bit long for the short barrel, but it’s comfy to shoot. )

    My DWs aren’t safe queens, but I will admit I don’t shoot them as much as I’d like to :(.

    Stay safe

    IMG_1084.JPG This DW15-2 isn't a safe queen but it's not the one I test my reloads with either. It's the closest to a "safe queen" I own. IMG_1580.JPG

    Very nice. Is that a 3" or 2 1/2" snub?

    This is a 3” barrel/shroud from EWK. I bought it years ago then I got a second 15-2 frame without a barrel to put the 3” set on. EWK still catalogues stuff for DW guns, but I never see it in stock. :(

    I do have the 2.5” VH that came in a 2-4-6-8 VH pistol pac. The upper DW in the small picture is from that set and has the 8” VH barrel/shroud on. (The bottom gun is a .22 caliber DW with the 6” V .)

    Stay safe.

    I don't have any true "safe queens"; I won't have anything I can't shoot. One comes close but I've fired it a fair amount over the decades. It's my 70s version Python. It gets babied and spends most of it's time packed away.

    LOL...nice catch...no story, bought some once fired brass and found six of them in the bunch, thought they were cool so I loaded them with some wad cutters and have never shot them.

    This thread makes me sad. Safe Queens want to come out and play too!

    Maybe this'll cheer you up. This 1967 Muese-Argonne Commemorative Colt 1911 (not A1), was unfired when I got it a couple years ago. Its got about 75 rounds through it now and counting......
